Alaska Blog Series - Why Cruise Alaska?




The beauty that is Alaska is breathtaking and no amount of words can describe it accurately.  It is something you need to experience and see in person. When they say it is the last frontier, that statement couldn’t be truer.





I’ve sailed to Alaska three times over many years and I still want to go back again. There is always something else that I want to see or do that I didn’t get to on my last trip. On two of those sailings, I went in the beginning of June and both were different in what we saw and experienced. On one, the warmer weather had just moved in, so waterfalls were abundant in every port of call.


 You may wonder if bringing children on this cruise is worthwhile. I can say without a shadow of a doubt it is.There are many educational opportunities that children won’t even realize because they’re having such fun and enjoying the majesty of the mountains, sites and wildlife. It’s an education not sitting behind a desk in a room, but outside experiencing it first-hand.

Some cruise lines will have experts they may bring on board for the day or guest lecturers that sail with you doing a serious of lectures. Our sailing on Celebrity Cruise Line had a guest lecturer who did a series on the different wildlife you’d see on your trip.  He was incredible and had interesting stories of his trips over the years working for National Geographic.

I also want to note that when I was taking photos at sundown when there was no sun; those photos would come out with a blue hue.  They are unusual, almost looking like a fake photo, but they are unique.
If you haven’t been to Alaska, I would recommend planning a trip there, you’ll be glad you did.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T.

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
